This month is an interesting one for you, Aquarius, featuring increased awareness of internal issues and dream imagery. The Gemini New Moon from May 30th implies that the month’s beginning lights up your creativity sector just as Mercury – still in retrograde – gets ready to station to direct motion on the 3rd, in your root cellar sector and in a square with Saturn, your traditional ruler. This implies that you are questioning nearly every aspect of your life as the month begins. Your creative self-expression is an area of your life that gets an enormous focus this entire month. You are also prone to communicate to others your deepest and most sincere set of values, as they evolve. All this is easing off by mid-month when also the Sagittarius Full Moon arrives to enhance your sense of the societal contribution that your creativity unleashes into the world. While there might be more questions than answers in the early going, this June month could wind up on a more optimistic and coordinated note. In this, much depends on your reaction to the events that befall you, as you aim for the highest that is in you.

The New Moon in Gemini that just occurred on May 30th, signalling the start of a new thirty-day lunation cycle, opens the month of June on a bright note for you. Mercury, still retrograde in Taurus, is in aspect to Pluto as Mercury prepares to station to direct motion, and this indicates a certain quantity of tension and of transformation, and this is in part in relation to your self-expression sector, where the New Moon is actually located. If you have invested time and energy into your serenity, this could be relatively peaceful for you, especially if you are willing to be flexible. Letting go is not always easy, but the more you surrender to what is, the more things seem to fall into place. You may be releasing overly rigid patterns to make space for growth, or it might be that you are finding new ways to connect with yourself and enjoy your own company. Expectations you had been putting on yourself may have weighed you down in ways you are only starting to realize. This month you may have the opportunity to reconnect with your sense of joy, primarily through the things that you do simply for pleasure. You may find beauty and sensuality in taking your time, and it may end up being the most productive thing you can do for yourself.
Saturn stations retrograde on the 4th, in a square with a stationing Mercury, and will move backwards through your sign until late October, highlighting the work you have been doing since Saturn first entered Aquarius at the end of 2020. You could find that you are developing a greater resilience for the things of this world, and you may start to understand the meaning of some roadblocks put on your path in the past few years. Saturn‘s lessons are not always easy, but the wisdom that comes from its teaching is always worth it, and you could start to see some tangible results.
The second weekend of June may contain a few surprises thanks to Venus meeting Uranus in Taurus. You may feel restless or want to do something different, and breaking from your routine could be fun. Mercury re-enters Gemini on the 13th, where it was before turning retrograde at the beginning of May. Mercury moving direct could speed up your thinking and creative output in the following weeks.
The Full Moon arrives on the 14th in the sign of Sagittarius illuminating the part of your chart that relates to your community, your dreams, and your social participation. With Neptune in Pisces squaring the Full Moon, there could be confusion related to the cost of a project, or you may feel unsure of your energy investment. However, the Full Moon also sextiles Saturn in your sign, which highlights your commitment to the importance of your contribution in terms of community. Your role may be essential, and it may be hard to get out of specific responsibilities, but the time and energy investment could be well worth it.
Doing what you love and loving what you do could be emphasized as June progresses. You could feel quite passionate about your ideas, and there may be a pioneering aspect to what you are doing. There could be ebullient energy about you, and others may have difficulty keeping up with the speed at which you can process information. However, this period may be less about getting others on board with you and more about channelling your inspiration and creativity into the proper structures.
On June 18th and 19th, Venus in Taurus squares Saturn and this could bring necessary pressure to formulate a long-term plan and assess your base of operation. Venus is also coming into a sextile with Neptune in Pisces, and this may highlight the speculative nature of what you are trying to accomplish. There may be a lot of unknown factors at this time, and you might have to rely on your determination alone to move forward with your ideas.
The Sun enters the creative sign of Cancer on the 21st, which signals the Summer Solstice and the longest day of the year in the Northern Hemisphere. This period could be highly fertile, especially for your projects or for letting your inspiration guide you. You may feel the tension coming from the number of things you would like to accomplish but remember that you may be putting tremendous pressure on yourself.
The Cancer New Moon takes place on June 28th, with the Sun and Moon square Jupiter in Aries. This could bring a tendency to overdo. The best way to handle the end of the month may be to approach things with moderation and discipline. By focusing your energies on a few single tasks, you may be able to accomplish a lot more.
